Eddie Hearn pulled out his finest Bo Selecta impression while waiting for fighters to weigh-in ahead of tomorrow’s Fight Camp launch. Hearn is set to stage several fights in the garden of his Matchroom headquarters this summer.

However, Hearn was left red-faced before the start of today’s weigh-ins, having produced an expletive impression from famous English comedy programme Bo Selecta live on Sky Sports.

As presenter Andy Scott introduces coverage of the weigh-ins, Hearn opts for a kung-fu style pose and shouts: “Cha’mone motherf*****s!”

Scott then puts his head in his hands, leaving a shocked Hearn to mumble: “It’s not live is it?”

The British promoter’s fears are confirmed when Scott tells him he is in fact live on Sky Sports.

An embarrassed Hearn then cannot contain his laughter as he says: “Oh my god.”

He then quote tweeted a clip of the gaffe on Twitter and wrote: “That was awkward.. when you think it’s a rehearsal”.
